Saints claim their bus was egged at Atlanta airport

Atlanta News, Weather, Traffic, and Sports | FOX 5

The New Orleans Saints traveled to Atlanta on Wednesday night to prepare for their Thursday night game against the NFC South-leading Falcons, and they received an unpleasant welcome from the city’s airport workers.

According to several tweets from Saints players, some Atlanta airport workers threw eggs at New Orleans’ team bus.

From backup quarterback Chase Daniel:

Tight end Jimmy Graham didn’t appreciate it:

Linebacker Will Herring told the same story:

But wide receiver Joseph Morgan didn’t even mind their actions:

He even added that if he scores a touchdown, he might turn the eggs into a celebration somehow:

The rivalry between the two teams has been heightened for the past few seasons, and it is especially strong this year after the Saints ruined Atlanta’s bid at a perfect season by handing them their only loss.

After New Orleans’ 31-27 win in Week 10, some Saints players said the Falcons were “classless” in their pregame behavior. Additionally, Falcons WR Roddy White ripped the Saints over Twitter a few years ago, and reiterated his stance about New Orleans this season saying he hates everything about the city and team.

If that’s what the airport workers are doing to the Saints, I’d be afraid to eat any meal I was served in Atlanta if I were one of their players. Thursday night’s game should be a good one.
